HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Vietnam veteran William Robinson and five other veterans were inducted into the Madison County Military Heritage Commission Hall of Heroes Tuesday.

Robinson, an Army medic, was awarded Bronze Star Medal for Heroism for actions in the Vietnam war on August 17, 1969 while serving as a medic. When his company came in contact with a large enemy force, he exposed himself to gunfire as he administered first aid to his fallen comrades and evacuated them to a safe area, saving several lives.
